the three robbers

I came across the blog Vintage Kids Books My Kid Loves today. It’s reminded me of lots of books I really like or have liked.

One that I haven’t looked at for a while is Tomi Ungerer’s The Three Robbers. It’s the illustrations I really like:

I nearly got to see latest film of The Three Robbers, directed by Hayo Freitag, in French, but thought “oh, it will come out in DVD, probably in English”. Not yet…

But anyway there is a great Weston Woods version animated in 1972 by Gene Deitch animated by Bohumil Šejda.
